Employee Is Killed In Fall From Tower

On June 6, 2005, Employee #1 was with a crew dismantling an unused microwave tower. The workers had just "jumped" the gin pole and were preparing to remove a "K" section from the south face of the tower. Employee #1 was climbing the gin pole to attach a sling to the "K" section when the gin pole began sliding down the tower face. It was abruptly stopped by the load line ball, causing Employee #1 to fall approximately 120 feet to the ground. He was killed.
